that’s how much the AHA estimates American hospitals and health systems lost over the first 4 months of Covid-19.

Hospital Color Codes & How IoT Can Help Avoid the Dangers They Warn About
blog
Watching enough medical dramas will teach any non-healthcare professional that hospitals use various color “codes” to announce emergencies over the intercom.
